This Grade II listed thatched cottage occupies a secluded position in the quaint village of Otterton, on the edge of Budleigh Salterton and just three miles away from the seafront.

The property is a former threshing barn, believed to date back to the 17th century, with many character features having been retained following its conversion into a residential dwelling in 1987.

Beyond the welcoming entrance hallway, there is a large living room with a dual aspect, a feature fireplace with a wood-burning stove and patio doors to the gardens. In comparison, the dining room is also a lovely reception space with access to the back garden. The modern kitchen has a classic look with a range of shaker-style units, complementary worksurfaces and several integrated appliances.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms featuring exposed timbers and a well-appointed family bathroom with a classic rolltop bath and handy underfloor heating. The principal bedroom has a full-length window, hanging storage and an ensuite shower room with underfloor heating.

Outside, the gardens are set across different levels and feature a gravel seating area, large lawns, a wildlife pond, mature shrubs and a thatched summerhouse.

A further area of garden is rented from Clinton Devon Estate with the current lease cost of £350 per annum. This area has a greenhouse, a vegetable patch and a selection of fruit trees.

The property has parking space for two or three vehicles.
